Okay, Now that Turkey Day Is Over...
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:36:04 PM »
Lots of folks end up with piles of leftovers.  You can either eat them, or store them.

Is anybody putting stuff away for LTS?  If so, what?  And how?

Nothing this year--I got in from Noo Yawk late neough, and on short enough notice, that we had no plans, including no turkey--but we have meat and stock from previous years.  Mrs. Drang makes a mean "white chili", with turkey meat and white (canellini) beans.

We will be buying up the left over bags of cranberries and I will can cranberry juice and cranberry sauce.  Plus frozen turkeys will be on sale also.  Will be canning turkey meat too!  Nuts are on sale also!  I'm going to try my hand at canning them.  Wish me luck...  Celery is only .99 a bunch...I will dehydrate the celery.  That's about it for us.

No leftovers for me - we're at my sister's home, 500 miles from my canning equipment. Didn't think to bring it or I'd be in the kitchen now canning up a storm. :(

I will be making soup a little later, or all those wonderful bones and scraps will be dumped in the garbage.

Egg - I tried dehydrating celery once & didn't like how it turned out - like pale green rocks. OK in soups, but not much else. Let me know if dried celery rocks is a normal result.  ;D If not, how do you keep it from turning into rocks?

For celery flavor I harvested my lovage seeds earlier this year. Good celery smell & taste.
God bless,

Hi Bon...hope your having a great time at your sisters....sisters are great!

As for the celery...yes, it does turn to rock..hahahah...but I grind them in the blender and then use the powdered celery and combine the cream soup mix together to get a cream of celery soup...

Also you can reconstitute it for stuffing and potato soup....

If you cut them into strips lengthwise, I use them as a snack...

Mix the powdered celery in with salt and you will have a nice celery flavored salt for dips and such...

I canned 1/2 pints of celery last year also...that worked out well...but because I don't use a whole lot of celery, it seems more economical to dehydrate it on a couple of dehydrator shelves then to can a canner of celery.

Isn't lovage GREAT!  it's like having a perennial celery plant.

ok so here is something my children's great Grandmother would make....she called it Escalloped Turkey Casserole

Take a casserole pan and layer the bottom with turkey.
Then a layer of stuffing.
Another layer of turkey
A layer of cooked rice
Then she would pour gravy over that...(we more "Modern" mothers have used Cream of Mushroom Soup or Cream of Celery or Cream of Chicken soup in place of the gravy...or along with the gravy.)

She then baked it in the oven until it was bubbly...

This is really really good.

Yes indeed! It's quite restful to be the helper instead of the one in charge!

Silly me - that's what I had planned for about 1/2 the lovage seeds, but I didn't even think about it for the celery.

I haven't got used to using the leaves or stalks as a replacement for celery all the time yet, but since it's in my garden it is much cheaper & easier to get than celery at the store. Kind of funny - last year, the first year it got big - it was an aphid magnet. This year, not a single aphid. Maybe it was all the soapy water I sprayed on it.  ;D

Musket user...that's funny....hahahah!

My kitchen is completely tore up...it looks like a page from a where's Waldo Book...hahahah...I'm getting cupboards in the kitchen and the pantry....so I haven't got to do much of anything....but hopefully I can get the edible nuts canned...

For all you folks out there....I grew up in a family that was politically divided....Grandma was a democrat and Grandfather was a republican....we still talk about the day that Grandma kicked Grandpa in the shin over a political remark he made...hahahahahah!
